Psychotherapy, Medication Management, Care Coordination, Crisis Services, and the clinic’s Open Access Clinic continue to be provided remotely and on-premise by appointment only.

It is understandable that given the stress people are experiencing from this COVID-19 outbreak there may be an increased need for mental health services.

Before you go to the Hospital’s Emergency Room, please contact Greene County Mental Health.

We can either help address the concerns you have without going to the hospital and risking exposure for yourself and hospital staff, or we can help determine if your need is greater than we can handle and then direct you to the appropriate resources.
